Live in HD program returns to the Clark
WILLIAMSTOWN, MA- The Clark Art Institute, 225 South Street, will air a live broadcast of “Adriana Lecouvreur,” a production of the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD program, on Saturday, January 12 at 12:55 pm.
“Adriana Lecouvreur” is an opera in four acts by Francesco Cilea to an Italian libretto by Arturo Colautti, based on the 1849 play “Adrienne Lecouvreur” by Eugène Scribe and Ernest Legouvé. For the first time at the Met, Anna Netrebko sings the title role of Adriana, the great 18th-century actress in love with the military hero Maurizio, sung by Piotr Beczała. Gianandrea Noseda conducts Cilea’s tragedy, directed by Sir David McVicar, with the action partially set in a working replica of a baroque theater. The cast also features Anita Rachvelishvili as the Princess of Bouillon, Adriana’s rival for Maurizio’s affections; Ambrogio Maestri as Michonnet, Adriana’s faithful friend; and Carlo Bosi as the duplicitous Abbé.
Tickets for this event are $25. For more information visit www.clarkart.edu.
